The Important Matter of Shopping Mall Barbers
Mistake number one.
The place was a complete pigsty, with about 100 barber chairs, filled with "shopping mall fucktards," and middle aged hatfuckers.
Frankly, under normal high IQ conditions, "The Fly" wouldn't spit at this barber shop, let alone get his fucking hair cut inside it.
Anyway, I sat down and the man who was assigned to me asked if I wanted a "number 2 or number 3," referring to his chopping machine, which he readily destroys perfectly good hair with.
I replied: "I don't want my hair to be cut with razor clippers, instead use a pair of scissors."
Mistake number 2.
To summarize a fucking nightmare experience, this guy left me looking like I have down syndrome or some shit.
Not only did he trim my side burns; he eliminated them. The back of my head has been mangled-- and the top resembles a pineapple.
After sitting in his disgusting chair for 15 minutes, I had enough and asked for mercy.
For 12 bucks, minus the tip, I had my hair destroyed by some shopping mall misfit.
I'm sure under different circumstances, I would have raised hell and left that old fucker with the shakes. However, on this day, "The Fly" was to leave the shopping mall, tame, looking like a fucking pineapple-- minus the delicious fruity part.
Shortly thereafter, I buzzed my hair down to fuzz.
Now, I look like a fucking skin head, minus the Nazi bullshit.
UPDATE: Danny's fired, mainly due to poor work ethic. It was a long time coming. Come on.
I had the same shit happen to me and the wife started laughing hysterically when she saw me, said I got a "girl haircut". Ended up shaving my head too and kept it shaved ever since.
Great writing, you have a gift!
Sorry about the buzz cut, I know how you feel. Back in High school, I let my buddy cut my hair, and the end result was the same. I wanted to stab him in the eye with his shitty pair of scissors.
to Mikes Shop (bunch of Russians) on Hylan blvd in between Wiman and Armstrong.
I can see your upset with Danny- but hey I'd like to see you after a week with no internets, hot water or shaving equipment.
HELL NO DANNY DON'T GO!
Financial predators, including an unnamed U.S. hedge fund and Sharewood Capital, which has a 4% stake, are understood to have checked out the New York-listed group in recent months, the newspaper reported.
Blackstone Group (BX) and Morgan Stanley (MS) are also have thought to have looked at the business, according to the paper.
I used to operated a dozen 'haircutting' salons in Miami which were beauty shops that also cut men's hair, you know, 'unisex salons.'
Clue #2: Get a chick hairdresser to cut your hair.
A mall cut is always a bad choice.
Would you pay a little extra now for a skilled stylist to groom your hair properly or continue to take chances with a hair dresser working for roman wage at a mall?
What did this man's hair look like who scalped you? That must of been a signal.
Another weekend slave goes down.
Well, now Danny can put down on his resume of intern blogger at "Fly on WallStreet".
Ask your 'stylist' how he/she was trained and you'll see what I mean.
